2018 Camper Application
Please read carefully before filling out application
Miami Girls Rock Camp is a week-long summer day camp program for girls aged 8 to 17. Campers do not need to have any musical experience, and instruments are provided.

Our mission is to use music and performance as a platform to promote self-esteem, community, and creative expression for young women and girls in the greater Miami area.

The program offers instrument instruction, songwriting/band practice, live performances by visiting artists/DJs, and workshops. The week culminates in a showcase concert. Campers receive two hours of instruction each day on selected instruments (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, vocals), in semi-private groups organized by skill level and age.

On the first day, campers are organized into bands, and during daily band practice, campers write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches. Every day of camp, we have a DJ/Band lunch hour, giving campers the opportunity to watch a performance while they have lunch. After the DJ/Band finishes their set, there is a Q&A with the artist. 

Campers gain first-hand exposure to professional women musicians through performances and workshops with a variety of topics. At the end of the week, camper bands perform their original songs at a showcase concert at a local music venue.

***Camp will be held from Monday, July 30th – Friday, August 3rd, with a grand finale concert on Sunday, August 5th.***

HOURS: Monday-Friday 9am-5pm (drop off 8-9am and pick up 5-5:30pm).
Sunday’s Final Concert will take place at TBA

If a camper is accepted, additional information about camp will be sent along with acceptance results. We will be accepting 40 campers this year and will consider all applications submitted during the open application period. No late applications will be accepted. Because one of the goals of MGRC is to create a camp with girls who have a diversity of skill levels, instrument interest, and demographic backgrounds, camp leadership will review applications with these things in mind.
